LivingTime Personal Timeliner is probably best described as a personal memory manager. It is a combination of journal, logbook, calendar, and timeliner. This software combines the modes of writing in a journal or diary, with the more concise item-tracking of a logbook, with the familiar monthly calendar, with the graphical representation of a timeline. Enter your life facts and events -- along with any photos or movies to associate with each event -- and gain new perspectives on what you've experienced and who you are.

Okay, let me give some detail.
The user interface is atrocious, there is nothing intuitive about it.
The main window is resizable, but it has no effect. To re-size the window you have to use the little magnifying glass +/- icons in the window.

There's an icon in a section called "Viewing" that allows you to enter text in to your journal. That's confusing. Viewing should be viewing, add/edit should be add/edit.

There's frequently two buttons on the screen that will take the user back to the main menu.

I click on "Calendar" and a new window pops open. In that window is a "return to main menu" button, but the main menu window is clearly visible; there's nothing to "return to".

None of the windows generated use Apple's standard close button; instead the user must locate your custom graphic "Cancel" button that looks nothing like any cancel button on the Mac and is not in the standard location of and cancel button on the Mac.

When I quit an application, I want it to quit; just quit. I don't need to hear closing music and be reminded of the development environment.

The fact that you really have to go through the tutorial or quick-start guide is a testament to the almost complete lack of thought put in to this app.

And your download servers are a mess. I had to manually resume the download about 15 times to get the demo. Your servers kept resetting the connection or the transfer simply died.
Even once you get the 28MB download, you STILL have to manually download the audio tutorial files to actually figure this mess out.

IF you're a Mac user (and why else would you be on MacUpdate), DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! You will be presented with an abomination of a user interface and a program that does not operate in any way like a standard Macintosh program you are used to. I can't even tell if it will do what I want it do because I can't get past the almost complete lack of usability.
On the up side, the program didn't crash once in the 30 minutes I was playing with it.

For Windows and Mac...Whoa! A towering achievement...and 27 Mb to boot. Must be RealBaSick again. Not that there's anything wrong with that in and of itself. But who needs all this in a single app? Obsessive-compulsives programmed it, and only obsessive-compulsives will delight in its use.

The size alone discourages me from downloading it even to test.

$49.95?????????? Sheer arrogance.

The Mac community needs all the develpers they can get and shareware users like me greatly appreciate these efforts. Some people will enjoy having a program like this and if you don't like the software or the price then don't buy it. It's the sheer arrogance of your comments that are uncalled for.
